This is a discussion on EDD May 2011 within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Originally Posted by kikilow Thanks for the info! What is jaundice above 200? Mine was a diff measurement, my doc ...
I dont know bout measurements too as I cant go check ups w him.. mother in law dont allow..
But mother in law say the doc mentioned that if baby jaundice level is above 300, need to go hospital do photo therapy..
My baby also had FM the first 2 days.. but I m still scared of nipple confusion..
sigh.. but if its the best for him I guess I will give him FM for two days.. his jaundice reading is 240 last thursday..
My wisdom tooth badly decayed during Preggy too n dentist couldn't do anything to me but advise me extract immediately after delivered.
Now on n off still suffering from toothache. Try gargle with salt water or put an ice cube to numb the area for temporary relieve
I gave birth on 3rd May at NUH.. my girl was found to have jaundice within 24hours of her birth and she was given phototherapy. Her jaundice level went down to about 150 and so we both were discharged on my 3rd day and on the 5th day, she was required to test for her blood.. and she was admitted again because her level went up to 373.. Cried like mad cuz so heart pain.. cry then my mother in law say confinement cant cry, will go blind.. -_-""
how to control such things, especially when you see your less than a week baby crying so hard and screaming when her hand was pricked for the drip..
Anyway, till today, she still has to go back to the polyclinic for blood test every alternate days and thank God the level was dropping, now is about 170+ already.. Dont worry, if the level drops, it will drop gradually =)
I did not give her FM till lately because she kept crying and always seems hungry. I couldnt cope with her demand so started her on FM while I pump out.. She can drink up to 120ml per feed .. now she doesnt want to latch on anymore. Am still trying to latch her while I can. Im hoping to fully BF her like what I did for the first 2 weeks. Regret giving her bottle.. =(
I understand what you are going through.. I cried n cried when I saw needles pricked into his hand n leg.. And yes, my baby was only 5 days old
at that time.. Polyclinic only want us to go back once a week and I dont know the level is high or low now as his eyes are still
yellow.. I struggled to bf now.. as I am afraid mine is actually caused by breastfeed jaundice.. I want to give him FM for 2 days but I dont know y i cant
bring myself to do it as I really love the special bond between us when breastfeeding..
I believe as long as you perservere.. you can contd to breastfeed.. There are some mums who spend days trying to latch on their baby and eventually
succeeded even though their babies got nipple confusion.. I believe as long as you believe in bf.. you can contd to bf
even though its tiring.. But its the best gift you can give to your baby.. As long as you feed your baby when she is hungry.. you can definitely keep up
with her demand.. drink more soup..it helps
Its great to hear that your baby jaundice level drop below 200.. mine is still at 240 at last reading.. I m worried as my baby is
very slpy.. he nurse 10-15 mins each time and every 3-4 hours.. I am afraid thats not enough but he's soooo difficult to wake up..
even when I undress him to only diapers.. He doesnt even open his eys or struggle..
Sigh.. I can only pray hard..
Jia you ok
i'm stil waiting for my boy boy to pop!
5days late .....
but doc says all healthy so wants me to wait 5 more days.
my baby's movement stil regular n strong so i shall be patient....
I am waiting too. I noticed my cramps are getting more frequent and intensity seems to have gone up too, but not yet the sort of pain that I hope it doesn't come back. Baby movement is also regular, but seems like the area her movements are felt have gone lower. Hehe wondering if she's engaged already.
Furthermore I'm just engorged not overflowing yet.
